First (& WORSE) English Translation of The Prince
Done in 1640, in the same style as the King James Bible - quite possibly the very worse form of the English language in it's entire history (so far). Like listening to Moby Dick as read by an East Indian from Delhi or a West Indian from Jamaica. Also, the translator did not limit himself to translating, but broadened his license to commentary on the body of the text, a task for which he had neither authority nor talent. That makes this edition ABRIDGED, not, as the Audible.com label announces: "Unabridged).
